Subject: Great book and great edition

Ok, so I am still working through it, but it is clearly written. The proofs for multiplying of s line segments and square root of a line segment is fun to work out (from page 5), and is a mind blower to even try taking the square root of a line segment.

Recommended for those that love Euclid's Elements:

Thank you, Northeastern University!
